Fabulous pictures accompany this story about bats and the dangers that they face. The book did a great job of presenting several different species of bats, and talked about what measures humans are taking in an attempt to try to protect bats from the hazards that we have introduced into their lives.
My niece and nephew seemed to enjoy this book. My nephew was resistant to this story (he wanted to read something else), but the pictures and the informative nature of this book soon charmed him, and he, too, had his nose pressed against these pages.
I would have appreciated more a out bat behavior, and more about how lovable these horror story staples really are, but the text was full of information, and it was a book worth reading with the kids.
